" I really appreciated the results-driven approach you took. I'm not necessarily interested in what caused the problems so much as how they could be addressed and your approach fitted the bill exactly. Since our last session, I've encountered some situations that would have been very stressful for me in the past, but so far, it seems that the techniques you showed me have helped me deal with them...in fact, in many cases, I'm not even consciously aware that I'm dealing with them- I'm just taking them in my stride.

I thought Serena was very to the point which I wasn't used to having had talking therapies before. But I found this directness very positive which meant I got a lot out of sessions in a short space of time. Thank you for inspiring me to put in so much-you advised.

"When I joined, it was after a long period of phases of anxiety, low points and points of self-doubt and worry. I knew I could get into ruts and they would work themselves out. They kept on coming back and I was fed up and felt they were limiting me. Learning CBT techniques helped me to realise that there are names to my thoughts. They are forms of negative thinking and that I don't have to believe them, not every worst case scenario will come true. The best part of CBT is that it helps you solve things independently and you can entirely catch your thoughts and realise they are not true. Thanks to Serena, I can now continue to implement the techniques I have learnt."
" Really useful sessions- Serena very responsive to concerns and allowed me to really talk before recommending techniques. Techniques were useful, some were overly effective. Overall Serena has been very easy to talk to and really listened to what I have had to say. I have never felt judged and have only felt like she wanted to help in the most effective and appropriate way."
" I came into these sessions without much expectations given what I had tried in the past but I now am able to face my fears and change bad habits that had hung over me for many years"
"These sessions have been a great help to me. I was drowning in problems and feeling quite depressed. I have learnt techniques for identifying my main issues of concerns and my responses to them. I have faced up to the challenges and feel able to take difficult decisions to address them."
"CBT has been a positive experience. The process of breaking down my problem into smaller bite size pieces made it easier to confront and manage. Cost vs benefit exercise is really effective and useful when you need to look at both sides-particularly the positive side!. CBT has given me the tools to reassess my situation and all the complexities that go to make up my unique set of circumstances and these have given me back my confidence in my abilities and my own sense of self-worth in who I am and my personality."
"Every session has felt relaxing yet productive. I never felt any judgement. Sessions were structured, flexible and accommodating with session times"
" Really calm, useful and helpful sessions to understand techniques to deal with anxiety and look at situations from a different perspective. Serena has a really lovely manner - meaning that you are happy to open up."
